politics lead. first rule about re-branding obama care, you do not talk about obama care. today the white house launched a three-week blitz on the public's perception of the affordable care act. because, according to press secretary jay carney, obama care does not exist anymore. here's what he told cnn's jim acosta. >> jim, i, first of all, there's not an insurance policy called obama care. i think it's important to your viewers that they understand they're purchasing private insurance. >> still, the president didn't shy away from the term today when he was defending the law. >> that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is, let's just go back to the status quo because they sure haven't presented an alternative. >> so what's in a name? let's bring in our panel, editor of the "weekly standard," bill kristol, former arkansas senator and chairwoman of the it's my business coalition, blanche linco lincoln, and washington bureau che chief for "usa today" susan page. former president bill clinton is slapping down reports a few weeks ago he was trying to give hill

is the liferaft on obama's sinking ship. alex is talking about the now, saying that democrats who want to split from the president even now can look somewhat to hillary clinton for safe harbor. do you see that happening, democrats in a way distancing themselves from the president and trying to move to her now? >> well, she's not making many public statements. she's really only come out and said some things to back him up on syria. you know what her husband did at a critical moment right after the news broke that the president sort of knew people were not going to be able in the self-insured market to keep the policies that they like, even though they have been told by the president that they could. bill clinton said he should honor that promise while his wife was somewhere staying silent. in the years to come, what you'll see is probably the former president, bill clinton, doing a lot of the dirty work to provide that separation and distance. at what point is she going to give, you know, senate democrats running in red states up for re-election in '14 or '16 cover, you know, she's

get away with. obama had the experience where joe decided that his policy on gay marriage was going to change. >> they're genuine in two different ways. >> and we started talking about it more and more seriously if hillary gets out -- >> he just spent five-and-a-half hours with the president of china. i don't know who was doing most of the talking during that meeting, but that's important. five-and-a-half hour meeting. a dinner -- you know this is where joe biden's experience on foreign relations committee, former chairman comes in. he has a personal relationship with this guy, so yes, he does say something like that. by the way, we're always complaining that our politicians are not candid. so you get a guy who is not candid and we complain about his candor. >> we are only talking about the blunder. we're not talking about what might have occurred in the meeting. >> yeah. we did cover it earlier, and we will cover it more with jon huntsman. he is a serious guy, but these gaffs get in the way. >> while we're talking about candor, let's talk about bill clinton and comments he made a f

are able to afford rent. but you know, president obama always talks about wanting to grow the economy from the middle class out, not from the top down. when you look at this jobs report, are there other weaknesses that you see? >> i just think that in general, the big weakness here is we still don't have enough jobs. 200,000's a great number but realistically, at this point in this recovery, we need to start worrying about is that going to be a high water mark as opposed to a step up to like 300,000, 400,000 a month which is what would really again, create the kind of pressure upward that we're just getting everybody a raise, basically. >> jim tankersley, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you look very sharp. i appreciate the beard as well. >> you should try it. >>> coming up on "the lead," he was in the oval office while nelson mandela sat in a prison cell. coming up next, we have former president jimmy carter who will share his memories of the south african leader with you and me. >>> plus, you might think partisan politics couldn't taint the legacy of an international icon. you
